Carnegie Council Senior Fellow William C. Vocke Jr. is executive director of the Taiwan Fulbright Foundation. He is working on developing new partnerships for the Carnegie Ethics Studio project. The vision of the Ethics Studio is "a global, interactive network sharing content and discourse" on international policy issues. We invite universities, secondary schools, and public education programs around the world to join in shaping the parameters underlying our expectations about international policy.
In addition to holding the position of senior fellow, from April 2008-February 2011, Vocke was also a Carnegie Council senior program director and an executive producer for the Carnegie Ethics Studio.
Vocke is a lifelong proponent of international education. He has been professor and Director of the Institute of World Affairs at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and recently resigned his position as a Professor at Taiwan’s top international affairs program at National Cheng Chi university. He also taught at National Taiwan University and at the Foreign Service Institute of the Foreign Ministry; consulted at the Ministry of Justice, International Investigations Bureau; and spoke regularly at academic and corporate events.
When the Cold War ended, Vocke became active in public education to try to have a small impact on the rapidly changing world. He subsequently became President of the World Affairs Council of Greater Cincinnati, then National President of the World Affairs Councils of America, and Executive Director of the Worlds Affairs Council in Milwaukee. During this extensive non-profit and community service he has also produced and hosted over 600 television and radio programs on public channels in Wisconsin and Cincinnati. He was also a successful local and national fund raiser for these organizations.
Dr. Vocke's PhD is from the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of South Carolina under Charles Kegley, and he emphasizes public diplomacy and the domestic sources of U.S. foreign policy. He has taught at SUNY Geneseo, Juniata College, UWM, and, on sabbaticals, in Germany, France, and South Carolina.
